Las Vegas is the hedonist’s idea of heaven; a glittering, bombastic fantastic rising out of the Mojave Desert. Everything is themed and in big lights. A Las Vegas visit requires stamina to get through your preferred shows, concerts, theme parks and rides, gardens, aquariums, museums, comedy and experiences. Many of the world’s best restaurants have a Las Vegas outpost so you can also tick off a few dining bucket-list items. We haven’t even got to the casinos nor nightlife, yet.
It doesn’t have to all glitz and glamour, though. Some of the more down-to-earth activities include kayaking and hiking down the Colorado River, horseback riding, scenic drives and rock climbing.
